In honour of Earth Day, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. says it has partnered with the Bergen Volunteer Centre to coordinate local community activities in which employees can volunteer time during their workday to “Serve the Earth”.
On Monday, 22 April 2019, a team of Konica Minolta employees will spend the morning at the Flat Rock Brook Nature Centre in Englewood, NJ to help clean up Jones Road Park Strip and install water bars on some wet sections of the trails.
Another group of employees will learn about organic sustainable farming at the Mahwah Environmental Volunteer Organisation. Volunteers will assist with daily farm activities, creating raised beds and shovelling compost.
“Konica Minolta has believed in sustainability and the need for companies to create positive change for decades, long before most of the corporate world was considering the need for action,” said Allison Kern, Senior CSR and Internal Engagement Specialist, Konica Minolta. “Earth Day is just one of many opportunities we embrace in order to make a positive impact on our planet.”
Lynne Algrant, CEO of the Bergen Volunteer Centre commends Konica Minolta on their dedication to serving the community. “Konica Minolta is a long-standing partner of the Bergen Volunteer Centre and we are thrilled to help their employees turn their caring into meaningful impact on “Serve the Earth” day. Konica Minolta’s global corporate commitment to help society move forward by solving environmental issues and improving quality of life is evident here in Bergen County. Through the service of their talented workforce and their philanthropy, Konica Minolta is a true partner in our mission to Improve Lives and Strengthen the Community.”
Konica Minolta also held an electronics recycling event at its Ramsey offices on Thursday, 18 April 2019. Employees were invited to drop off unwanted electronic items for free, environmentally friendly recycling.
Konica Minolta reveals that its proactive and expansive global sustainability initiatives and commitment to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals have earned them recognition from an impressive list of prestigious organisations. Earlier this year, Konica Minolta was awarded Gold Class by RobecoSAM, the world’s leading research and rating company in the environmental, social and governance, (ESG), investment field for the second consecutive year. Also this year, the company was listed among the “2019 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World” by Canada-based Corporate Knights in conjunction with the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum.
